Came her with 12 family members to celebrate a birthday... The kids ate for half price as they came under the minimum height the birthday girl who was 75 had her meal for free and a birthday cake... Plenty of different varieties of food to choose from.. The kids loved the chocolate fountain and the candyfloss maker

I have been to this eating place a few times. I do enjoy the food however wouldnt say it is amazing. I think its worth it if you are on a budget and fancy eating out.

Very rude staff. Awful quality food. Unclean toilets. If I had an option to give no stars I would. I hope reading the reviews others have left and my review will help others avoid here and try another chinese buffet. Some staff made you feel very unwelcome and seemed very unfriendly. Food was very dry and seemed to be sat... More

I recently went for dinner with a group of friends. I wasn't keen to start with as I had heard bad reports in the past. On arrival all looked pretty clean. Waiters/waitresses need a good shake. No enthusiasm for their jobs at all. The food was ok I guess if you could tell what type of meat you were eating.... More

Good food- staff rude and not very welcoming. For a buffet the food is very good quality and always very warm! Would return but would not rate the staff

Fancy fast food is a quick way to put it! It definitely isn't posh food, nor is it suited for a date or a business meeting, but works well for families or with a group of friends you know well. The place isn't very nice, with a massive room which tends to be less than half full, with music which... More

I've championed this place in the past as I've had some good times here. However, today was not good. We did enjoy good, quick and attentive service at the table but the experience was seriously let down by the food tonight. The chicken satays were only just cooked and the chicken balls in batter were over cooked and hard. A... More
